The FacePrint project has been approved for funding by the Eurostars Programme, a joint programme between EUREKA and the European Commission.
The FacePrint project will develop a market-ready, rapid, and low-cost 3D printing service for facial prosthetics. The consortium will initially develop this service for auricular and nasal prostheses that perfectly matches facial features such as shape, rigidity, and the skin tone of patients. A cloud-based interface is used to design the patient-specific ear and nose prosthesis. Subsequently, a unique 3D print process and biocompatible material is used to construct the prosthesis.
